As the user cisco mentions: This is no longer made by Giorgio. It is made in the United Kingdom by Design Parfums Ltd.
Anyway, i just got it... And i think its the softest, skin-close scent ever! It is very natural, clean, really pleasant and comfortable.
Shame on sillage and longevity... Doesn´t last on me more than 30 min! But i really like it due its softness, so i´ll just keep it spraying...

In my early twenties, I was a GBH Wings devotee but was ready for something different. I remember waiting with baited breath for Ocean Dream to come out after smelling it in a magazine strip. I would pester the salespeople at the department stores weekly. It finally came out at the end of summer, which I remember being odd, since it was clearly meant to be a summer fragrance.

As soon as I sprayed it on me, I understood what people meant when they said a scent didn't work with their body chemistry. I was so disappointed it didn't work out for me. I loved the aquatic notes in theory, but that particular combination of "wet" floral, vanilla and musk was disastrous on me. I'm so glad you had to try new perfumes in person in those days, as it saved me from the disastrous "blind buy".

Later that same year, Champagne (now Yvresse) and Les Belles de (Nina)Ricci--green bottle, with tomato/leaf notes, came out. Those perfumes really suited my personality, and I still wear them. Although I dislike Ocean Dream, it taught me a lot about selecting perfumes.

I just love this fragrance, so sad its gone. It leaves me seeking my new favorite. I did just order some from ebay which I'm concerned will be a knockoff, but we will see! Soft notes of floral and water. An easy wear.

I bought this around 14 years ago in the Harrods sale and I'm still very happy with it. It is what it is, an underrated powdery, floral aquatic, and it does it exceptionally well. The balance of the individual notes has been expertly produced as they all work hard together to give a fully rounded, wear anytime, inoffensive fragrance. For me it's calming and grounding and makes the world feel like a happier, cosier place. If you want a beautiful floral aquatic, this one should definitely be a consideration.

I have blind buyed this one ( this is not happening so often) because I have always loved the magazine ad .
When I was young I was collecting perfume and makeup magazine ads , and the Ocean Dream one has always been one of my favorite, but I couldn't find the perfume here in France.
Now that I own it, I can say that it is what I was expecting regarding the ad ( it's not always the case, sometimes it seems that the person who designed the ad has never smelled the scent).
This scent is a typical 90's , it's airy , light, aquatic and calm . Reminds me of discontinued scents like Eau d'Eden , Fleur d' Eau from Rochas ... So Ocean Dream is a survivor!
Surely nothing to do with the nowadays trendy fruitchouli .

What a superb scent! I love it! It's in the style of the 90s salty-aquatics but on a floral tangent. The orange blossom is quite pronounced: it's like wearing a tiny drop of Jean Paul Gaultier Classique on a layer of Escada Ocean Blue, yet the scent is lovely in its own right. I get the musk and maybe a bit of heliotrope. This is more than a beachy vacation scent: I think it suits any occasion. Pretty, pretty bottle.

I love love love this nice soft aquatic perfume. It is beautiful during the summer and springtime. My husband loves this on me. I am still confused about what notes are actually in this though? Other websites list cedar and moss, bergmont, and peach and lemon, but I don't see any of those notes listed here. Does anyone know??? Well, this is an oldie but a goodie that is soft and comforting. Love it.

An interesting aquatic...I smell the heliotrope very strongly. At least I think that's what it is...I'm not too familiar with real heliotrope, but I know that it's found in L'Heure Bleue and I can smell a definite similarity. As far as an ocean smell, the drydown does have that certain salty mineral quality that one's skin might have after spending a day in the waves.

I just received a sample of this and it is so light smelling after 5 min. I can hardly smell it at all. I don't think it matches with my skin or taste. Much too light for me.

a nice spring or summer fragrance. beachy warm, balmy, yet airy. a lovely floral aquatic. i love the water lily note in this. i find that it gives this perfume the perfect sweetness. there is also a hint of citrus from the orange blossom. a good casual fragrance that won't offend.

A fresh but not overpowering or too sweet aquatic frag. I smell waterlilly, musk and heliotrope with a tiny hint of sandalwood. I actually bought this as a gift for my mother who's a big fan of aquatics and think she will like it very much!

Had this one a while back. I remembered it as very fresh, aquatic & casual. I think is perfect for a day at the beach or to take on a vacation.

I loved this when it first came out-I practically lived in it. It smelled fresh, clean, and warm all at once. My bf at the time thought it was amazing. When it became harder to find I moved on to other scents. I wonder if I would still love it now...

I almost have forgotten that I have this beauty in my wardrobe! Since a couple of days summer came back to Switzerland and we have currently fanciful 22c in the morning and it will go up to over 30c today so therefore this morning I was looking for something "fresh and summery" to wear to get me through this hot day at the office. I rather would have spent the day at the lake …;-)

Suddenly, while I got dressed, I remembered that I actually still own a bottle of "Ocean Dream"! I got my first bottle when it came out in 1996 or so….and it was one of my favourite daytime fragrance back in my "Miami days"…. When I got back to Switzerland a bought a bottle again, but seldom wore it since it reminded me so much of my days in Miami and my ex-husband….

So today, after many years of absence from this fragrance I wear it again with great joy! This is really a very beautiful fragrance and I remember that I received tons of compliments from men and women back then (in Miami) whenever I was wearing it!

The scent is fresh and clean smelling….a bit flowery and aquatic ….It really captured the smell you get while you spent a day at the ocean or lake….very beautiful!!!

"Ocean Dream" is not overpowering but it is still noticeable enough to others when the stay a bit closer to you….like for example in an elevator! This actually has happened today when I got in the elevator this morning with a guy and he was deeply inhaling (!) the air around him…..

So far, no "bad memories" of my ex….so therefore I will wear this beauty for the rest of the summer! :-)

I cannot wear aquatics but can wear Ocean Dream. It is so refreshing and clean. It wears close to the skin on me. I also have the dusting powder which I love. The combination makes for a perfect Summer scent. The longevity is average.

This is no longer made by Giorgio. It is made in the United Kingdom by Design Parfums Ltd.

like many reviewers here, i was in love with this fragrance back in middle school- i found half a bottle in my mom's house, and decided to bring it back with me. i don't know if perfume goes bad over time, but it smells like pure alcohol, and nothing else.
my main critique of the original fragrance, from when i did wear it years ago, is that it wore off really quickly.
i will have to hunt it down and smell a fresh bottle to see if it is still the smell i remember it to be.

I don't think it smells much like it did back in the day. I loved it then, it really did evoke childhood memories for me of being at the beach; it had the sun, sand, sea smell, and the bottle was lovely with that ocean color and the little pearl. The bottle is still nice but the scent is just not there for me anymore.

I fell in love with this perfume when I was 9 years old, the magic bottle and fragrance ... obviously my parents didnt buy it, I was too small to use.
Years passed and I looked like crazy ... to finally find this perfume .. totally reminds me of the days on the dock watching the sea at sunset.
Fresh, floral, comforting with something that i dont know what it is but that takes you into memories.
It is very feminine,for me and my skin.
Azhar leaves remain on my skin and fade away as if you were soaked in seawater.

I absolutely adored this fragrance when it first came out in 1997 it was my signature fragrance for summer. So light and fresh and oceanic. It was the perfume that I wore when I first met my husband. I was so disappointed when I couldn't find it anymore. I recently did a search on the internet and couldn't believe that it was still being made - unfortunately not by Georgio Beverly Hills, but I was just so happy to have found it again. So I have a bottle on my dresser all ready for spring/summer. I love to smell clean and fresh but find I really dislike citrus perfumes so this floral aquatic really fits the bill and yet it still has depth with its sandalwood and musk notes. Beautiful.

back in 1997 or so I bought this for someone special after testing dozens of women's fragrances. I can still recall that tender smell. Perfect.

I love this, I bought about 10 bottles of it with the lotion as well. I can see why some think its a young scent, but i dont think so. Its a fresh clean and utterly pleasant beachy ocean scent, perfect for summer, it always makes me feel happy when I wear it. Would be suitable for any ocassion, my husband loves it, and although it called a floral here, I have to say its more of an aquatic scent. Reminds me of TBS Oceanus.

I was obsessed with Ocean Dreams back in middle school on to high school. It was my signature scent and really started my love affair with perfumes. I still have a bottle and will wear it from time to time. Even after all these years I never get sick of the smell. It is a refreshing, beautiful, daytime wear perfume.

This really did smell like the ocean. I think the farther north beaches will have this smell that snobuni77 thinks is too pungent or whatever, but without that one thing, it was great. Not sure what it is, or if it is the result of this combination. Reminded me of vacations we took when the kids were young.

I remember back when I bought this (untested) I couldn't stand it.Something sour about it.Im not sure even if sour is the right way to describe it but it was just pungent and to POW in your face with something that was very unfeminine & definitely not pretty.Maybe it was just my chemistry ??
Very pretty bottle though

Very nice floral but nothing spectacular about it. I had this but really didn't use it much. I wasn't one of those perfumes you keep going back to, you know?
